Verb Crisis examines architectural solutions to the extraordinary conditions of an increasingly dense and interdependent world.It presents innovative projects and research through original photos, essays, and exclusive interviews with key figures from architecture and urban planning to environmental, economic, and global affairs. Confronted by shifting densities and uncharted urban transformations, Crisis tackles the conflict between the physical limits of architectural design and the demands on the practice for an updated social relevance. Featuring: FOA, Teddy Cruz, Shigeru Ban, Elemental, Boris B.Jensen, Hilary Sample, John May, Jacobo García Germán, Markus Miessen, Interboro Partners, MVRDV, and Takuya Onishi.

An extremely varied collection of places, opinions, and architectural designs, yet with a great amount of depth, all focused on a difficult topic. It holds great promise for future issues of Verb that will (hopefully) tackle other difficult issues that require not only changing approaches to architecture but changing attitudes in the reader. --Archidose-- Coming from one of the most fashionable publishers in Europe, Crisis could only raise very high expectations and, of course, fail to fulfill them...the book doesn't disappoint, it is a fantastic source for reflection and inspiration. --We Make Money Not Art
This combination of empirical research and pragmatic response - actually looking at the city to see what it is like as opposed to wishing it were something else - is a strong theme in all the work included. ...The Latest issue of Verb is refreshingly critically engaged... addressing some genuinely thoughtful and provocative work...If you ever wondered whether there were any architects left with a sense of critical or social engagement, or an interest in the wider political and economic realities of their practice, then Verb Crisis is worth a look. --ICON Magazine
VERB: CRISIS - defining 'crisis' as 'a decisive moment when tensions and instabilities peak and change become inescapable'. The newest book the Actar's VERB series looks at cities in the midst of this threshold state and what it's like to build and live in an crisis urban condition. --Life Without Buildings

Descripción ActarD Inc. Paperback. Estado de conservación: new. BRAND NEW, Verb Crisis, Mario Ballesteros, Albert Ferre, Irene Hwang, Current architectural intervention has demonstrated a tendency towards the production of the superficial - effects, ornamentation, and embellishments are applied to programs defined by social, economic, and technical conditions that fall outside of the profession. "Verb Crisis" tackles the conflict that marks the collision between the physical nature of the architectural commission and the demands of a world that is increasingly dense and interdependent, a world marked by undeniable environmental problems and economic inequalities. Given the shortfalls of standard professional attitudes, "Verb Crisis" presents projects and investigations that grant the practice of architecture an updated optimism and social relevance.
